Expensive, but not without reason. Many of these rare beers are hand carried imports. Service is outstanding and welcoming. Three Floyds available often. The only place Iíve ever seen Terrapinís Wake Ní Bake outside the US state of Georgia. I canít reiterate enough that the impossible-to-find stuff is here.

Awed by the selection that they have here. Good food, had the salt burger. If I had found this place earlier I would have spent a lot more time and money here. Going back here next time I am in Japan.

For my money, the best bar in Japan. Best selection by far, nice relaxed ambiance, good food, and attentive staff. Only negatives for me are the high prices and out of the way location.

The bar is worth a visit, visited the bar itself 3 times, they have good beer and variety and friendly staff who speak OK English. Not only beer but also Japanese whiskey.

I enjoyed this place a lot and was impressed by their selection of US craft beer. If you are hunting after some elusive bottles from Three Floyds they might have them in stock. The prices are a bit steep but it sounds like the owner imports much of the beer himself. The food was great just a little on the small side for serving size.

Nice little bourbon and craft beer bar tucked away in Shibuya. Nice selection of drafts with what seems to be an equal amount of Japanese and imports (U.S., Europe, etc.). Very nice bottle list with breweries including Three Floyds and Hair of the Dog. Bartenders are very nice and talkative despite the language barrier. Some of the small plates/starters are a bit small portioned but the food is solid.

After Mugishutei, this is probably one of the coolest places to go out for beer in Japan. They have tons of rare American bottles available, a decent selection of Japanese & American craft beer on tap and prices for those are average for Tokyo. The rare bottles arenít so badly priced when you figure this place gives you a chance to try Dark Lord from Three Floyds, Allagash, Founders, etc. which are usually unavailable in Japan or outside the brewery. The staff are knowlegeable, friendly & cool. The atmosphere is great but a bit too dark which made it tough to get good photos. They also have a bunch of beer goods like tshirts & glasses available. I heard the food is good and I will try it next time. All in all an excellent place and I will be sure to visit again whenever I am in Tokyo!

A nice selection of american beers with some hard to find rarities. Japanese craft on tap as well as american. A bit pricey, but to be expected from the line up. Staff speaks English well enough for it to not be a problem.

Nice new bar with great beers available. A bit pricy, but top conditioned beers, many of which you wonít find anywhere else. Servers seem to know their stuff, and the owner was very knowledgeable and friendly. Have to go back for more. They have DL in the bottle!

Opened in Sept 2009. Lovely layout with a fair amount of space (for Japan). Selection of beer is probably the best in Tokyo in terms of quality, not quantity. As it says on itís website "I donít see any crap on tap, do you?" Very well thought out selection, served at good temps and in very good condition. A lot of thought has gone into the beer. Micheal, the owner, also goes to the US and brings back beer. That means Dark Lord and some other very rare US stuff is available very frequently in bottles (he has had DL on tap at Sals once as well!). The draft list leans to US stuff, but there are always a couple Japanese stuff on tap too. Moreover, the tap list always has fairly rare stuff, ie. last visit I had Brother Levonian, Ivan The Terrible and Shonan Imp Stout. Staff speak English, so that is useful. The selection of US beers would make many bars in the US jealous. In addition to this he has over 300 bourbons. The downside is 1) a bit tricky to find (call if you get lost) 2) No pints (only 200 or 350ml - though that encourages sampling) 3) Prices are around the most expensive in Tokyo 4) Food portions are small, though very tasty. Sals did much better for food I thought on price and volume. This is a beer geeks bar and not a place to bring people who arenít into beer or bourbon. If you are visiting from out of town, despite the heavy US selection, I would say this is a must stop. Guarantee to be something you have never tried.
